Question: Teacher Duty Free Recess

I have seen where many school have a Teacher Duty Free Recess during Teacher Appreciation Week and I wanted to know how you got the go ahead fromt he principal. When I brought this up, our principal turned it down and used the reason of "liability". The secretary said they had done this in the past so I don't know why there is an issue now.

It would be good to ask more questions to find out if there is any way for parents to help out while alleviating the principal's concerns. Perhaps an experienced staff member could stay outside to with parent volunteers so it's not just parents outside. Or maybe only parents who have undergone background checks would be allowed to do it.
